    I am looking for a TLR or Folding Camera (with coupled rangefinder hopefully). A meter is not needed, cosmetically it could like like crap, as long as it works PERFECTLY. :smile: Bellows should be good, no light leaks or holes, shutter works as it should and no fungus in the lens. :smile: I am not looking for any particular model or brand. And it should produce negatives that are 6x6 or larger. If you have one, please PM me with price and a details about it, and pictures if available. Thank you. :smile:

    PS: If you have the Praktisix, Pentacon 6, or whatever variations it has, please let me know as I am considering that too.

    I have a few...

    I was watching hoarders last night an realized I have a problem.
    I have TWO extra Richo Diacords...one working great the other taken apart:laugh: due to sticky shutter. I thought about recovering it in colored snake skin or something.


    $135 for both Richo (this is my favorite TLR I have another I am keeping, very decent lens)

    I have a Ziess Ikon that is older and words great. ($55)

    I can send you a photo or two of whichever you are interested in.

    Right now I can offer an Ensign Auto Range 220 (coupled rangefinder, distances in feet, Ensar triplet on 8-speed Epsilon shutter, automatic counter anddual format 6x6 & 6x4.5), a Hapo 66E (aka Balda Mess Baldax, uncoupled rangefinder, distances in meters, Pronto shutter with Haponar 75/3.5 lens, automatic frame counter, only for 6x6) and an Adox Golf (nice 6x9 viewfinder camera, also dual format although I don't have its mask, Schneider-Kreuznach Radionar 105/4.5 lens on Prontor-SV with the distances in meters)

    They all work, of course. Let me know if you are interested in any and I can send you pictures from the camera and taken with the camera. I'm based in Europe, though.
